Beliefs, culture, and groups are all powerful things. Once the culture becomes dominated by a set of beliefs, that tends to be it until a REALLY powerful conflict happens.
Churches being based on beliefs, trust, and large groups of people have throughout history gained significant power and influence. The ability to change the politics of the land.
I’m only pointing this out because you have power too. The power to organize a group of like-minded people. The power to develop a culture that operates in the way that you believe is possible. The power to make the world a better place to live. It doesn’t need to be for the entire world, it could be for 100 people in your local community.
We all have this opportunity, most of us don’t make use of it. It’s time to wield your power responsibly.
